Our Itnlned Km if/ration.
Look nt the alarming decrease of our
emigration for the last nine months of
the preseut year, lu the port of New
York where nearly all the emigrants
coming to this country land, the com
parison during the last three years stand
thus :

Tims it will bo scon that (luring nine
months of this year there was a falling
off of 105,684 emigrants as compared
with tlic proceeding three quarters of
1863, and 110,542 as compared with the
same period of 1872.
Statistical demonstrations widely dif
fer as to the average value of an emi
grant to the United States. Some au
thorities place the value as high as $1,
500 each; others as low as $800 each.—
But if we take the averago of $1,000per
head, our loss this year has been *105,
084,000 m tbe non-arrival of tlic usual
quota of emigration. But this is not
ull. During the summer steamers were
crowded with outward bound passen
gers, working men going home to Eu
rope to seek labor which here they
could no longer find. Now, the reason
of this national misfortune is laid at
the door of the panic of 1873. That
panic is to tlic Republican party wliat
tlie "Temple." in Paris, where the un
happy Louis XVI. was imprisoned,was
during 1792 to tho Jacobins. Distur
bances, worthlessness of tlic assignats,
reveTsos in the campaign—nil was laid
lit tho door of the "Temple." Do you
want to know tlio cause of the defeat
of our armies?" cried Robespierre.—
"You will find it in the Temple, where
"tlic tyrant is allowed tolive,"A:e. &e.
But suppose there is reason lor laying
our distress to tlic panic broughton by
.lay Cooke & Co. and Henry Clews &
Co.? Who is to blame for It but the
very Republican party nnd adminis
trations that built up these mushroom
firms?
The truth is, we are declining in
every branch of industry; hundreds of
thousands of artisans and sturdy work
ing men are tramping about our large
cities, paupers, out of work. New
England is pauperizing lier labor still
further by only giving her artisans two
tliirds of work. Our export trade in
manufactures is gone beyond all belief
nr calculation
The farmer blessed this year beyond
all precedent with a large crop, will
find himself more in- debt when the
year comes round than ever—simply
because it costs him 85 cents or $1 to
raise a bushel of wheat, and he has to
sell it in the WcRt for 8U cents. There
fore, the more ho has harvested tho
more lie will lose. The South is con
vulsed by a set of scalawags and ear
jet baggers, emmissuries of thcRcpub
ican patty to keep up the strifo and
bring on a frcsli intestinal war.
How to Cure Di/sjjepttla.
Dr. Brown-ScquarJ's method of
treatinn dyspepsia, which he low found
HUecosaful in the majority of ease«
during ten years praeticc, is on the
principle of eating little, hut often.
Take from one to four mouthfuls lit
once, hut cat again in ten, twenty or
thirty minutes. Uso nourishing food
and drink, as roasted or broiled meats,
and 'especially beef, mutton, eggs,
well-baked bread, and milk, with but
ter and cheese, and a very moderate
quantity of solid food for one day
should not exceed forty ounces. Tins
plan need bo pursued but two or three
weeks, when return may bo had to the
ordinary rule of three meals a day.
By this method tlic stomaeli is gently
and steadily occupied, but not over
loaded.

For the Gazette.
Mb. Editor :—If convenient, pleaso
give this communication a place in your
valuable paper.
Tho few words of advice you gave the
Democrats on Saturday afternoon in ref
erence to tho parado was good odvico
indeed, and I liavo no doubt but what
the marshals took tho hint. But tho
Republicans must not misconstrue y
words as words of fear, (as I heard one
make a remark to that effect myself,) be
cause 1 know, as doos every other Demo
crat in the State of Delaware, that the
Gazette is not tho paper* to fear any
thing.
When
OUI
started ont in the evening it
was with the determination to conduct
ourselves as white men and Democrats,
but wo also made up our minds that if
we were molested, its wo had every rea
8 ° ll i!° Relievo that wo would be, wo
could and would take care of ourselves
aa the other party verv well knew, by
the great numbers which enrolled them
selves under the white man's banner on
Saturday evening.
The negroes which were imported on
Saturday to raise a disturbance in tho
evening were greatly disappointed at the
ill success with which their project
crowned.

The Maid of Orleans .
The Maid of Orleans i3 to be canon
ized. To bring about this result was, it
is said, ono of tho principal objects of
the recent visit of the Bishop of Orleans
to Rome. To fulfill the necessary condi
tions of canonization, a special tribunal
has been instituted at Orleans to receive
the evidence relative to "the touching
story of this admirable heroine." Among
tlio points to bo submitted to this court
are the facts concerning her birth and
infancy, conduct toward her parents,
piety to the Virgin, fulfillment of her
duties as a.Catholie, her gift of prophe
cy» her aspirations, provisions and mira
cles, her cardinal virtues, and, finally,
her captivity and martyrdom. Louis the
Sixteenth is also a candidate for the
same honor. Joan's claims are indisput
able ; tho King's are perhaps not suffi
ciently ancient, though his misfortunes
were terrible. Then the Bourbons count
several saints of both seres in their fam
ily . \V ill tho timo ever come when the
President of a Republic will figuro in
u° P a ^ ei ^ er ? Louis the Sixteenth was
the best figure in his whole court, and it
is sod to think that ho was martyrized
for tho faults of a society that formed a
part of his heritage, and which the ob
stinacy of advisers prevented him from
correcting in time.
Newspaper Sale.
The change in tho ownership of the
Chicago Tribune creates some excitement
in the Northwest—such an agitation in
political circles as shows the power of
tiia newspaper proas. The storting of-—
the new administration organ, the Repub
lic, in Now York, is a mere trifle compar
ed to it. The Chicago Tribune now may
bo looked upon, under the editorship of
Mr. Medill, os a Republican Grant pu
per, opposed to a third term, perhaps, at
{ »resent, but like all the other purely po
itical Radical press, ready to support it
rather than bolt if the issue were forced
upi «il it. The ranks of the independent
press have boon steadily growing, and
this is the first important defection. The
value of tho Tribune stock is proved by
the fact that the shares which gave Mr.
Medill control of it wero bought
basis for the whole paper of an estimate
of ono million dollars. During the ten
years before the panic it paid a yearly
profit of ono hundred ana fifty-three
thousand dollars. Since the panic its
receipts have of course been less, but
what they liavo been is unknown. Oth
er Western papers—some of those of St.
Louis for instance—aro held nearly at
the same valuation as the Tribune.

Gatherings In the South .
There has been much written lately
that is very dubious about political gath
erings and conflict of races, yet there is
one class of gatherings all over the South
about which there is not even the shad
ow of doubt, namely, gathering for the
purpose of purchasing tlie remaining
tickets for the next and last Gift Concert
of the Public Libiary of Kentucky, to
come off November 30. Tho South has
been impoverished, and a reasonable
share of that $2,5CUJH)0 then to be dis
tributed will be very acceptable. t-eod3t.

The llemoval of Dry Putty .
According to an English journal, the
difficulty of removing hard putty from a
window sash can bo obviated with great
readiness by simply applying a piece of
hard metal, such as a soldering iron or
other similar instrument. When heated
(but not red hot) tho iron is to be passed
slowly over the patty, thereby rendering
the latter so soft that it will part from
the wood without any trouble.

The Peanut Crop.— For the year end
ing September 30, the people of tho Uni
ted States consumed 589,000 bushels of
peanuts. Tennessee furnished 185,000
bushels, Virginia 225,000, North Carolina,
185,000, and the rest, 125,000 bashels, was
imported from Africa. The maturing
Virginia crop is said to bo laige, probably
j about 350,000 bushels, while the new
woo-1 North-Carolina crop is estimated at 120,
sten-1 000 bushels. Virginia is, therefore, the
a | banner State for peanuts as well
